Trophy Hunters beware

This is probably one of the worst games I have played on the PS3 in a long time. I am a trophy hunter so I do have a high tolerance for trash. This came is repetitive, childish, and ful of cutscenes that add no value to the game. By the second trivia section, I had a terrible headache. I rented this game based on reviews that this was a fun, relaxing alternative to RPGs and FPS... instead this was just an alterrnative to fun... period.
Trophy hunters this is pegged as an easy plat., however there is a trophy for not gettting a trophy in 5 hours. This may be easy however since it takes more than 5 hours to get someone to play against online. Getting four people(trophy for that too) is impossible.
If you are looking for a trivia game try national geographic instead.

The Perfect Justification for Gamefly

To start with, if you have EVER played a You Don't Know Jack (and enjoyed it) then there should be absolutely no hesitation in adding this game to the top of your queue right now. The game has all the hilarious quarks and inside jokes of the past as well as a whole slew of new ones including my personal favorite: the wrong answer of the game.
Now, for those of you who are unfamiliar with the YDKJ series, listen up. Do you like trivia? Do you like jokes? Are you already paying to rent games? Well you have found your salvation. Ideally, you want at least two people to play this game, four would be ideal (you don't want to play it online, more on that in a bit). Even if you don't have four controllers, I was still able to play with four people using my two controllers, my steering wheel for GT5, and the BD remote because the you literally need six buttons to play this game and none of them are joysticks.
Ok, so the game isn't particularly long. Each round consists of Ten questions (nine really, one is a Dis or Dat which is played by the player in last place), and the followed by a final lightning round. There are only 73 games included (There are a few DLC's) and if you try to replay one, the same questions will appear in the same order (which could be an advantage if you're say.... a cheater).
Of course, this is a reason that makes this a game PERFECT for rental! I mean, with almost zero replay value, why wouldn't you rent it, play through it, and send it back. I know I did.

YDKJ promises a fast-paced, comedic romp through pop culture, and delivers. With a chicken to boot. The tongue-in-cheek humor was a little much for my kid, but it's sometimes so bizarre, I was scratching my head trying to get the joke. It's not a very long game, but it's fun to pick up and play, because there is hardly any loading time at all. The "wrong answers of the game add some outside-the-box thinking to the hectic paced trivia, and the prizes are pretty funny. All-in-all a really good time.
